Public Works Projects

The Public Works Department has an extremely busy construction season scheduled this summer.  As with any street or utility construction, there may be delays or closures in the area.  Please be patient, use caution and pay close attention to flaggers and other construction workers.  Safety of both the workers and the travelling public is of utmost importance in all of our work zones.  Below is a brief synopsis of each project.  If you have any questions about any of the projects, please contact the Public Works Department at 541-492-6730.


South Stewart Parkway Project: 
The project will include: Safety related improvements including additional vehicle travel lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, and street lighting on both sides of the street.  Storm drainage Improvements include a new piped system within the roadway, detention ponds to help alleviate flooding on Newton Creek, and storm drainage treatment facilities to protect water quality.  It will also include enhanced wetland habitat areas, updated traffic signals at Stewart Parkway and Harvey Court and the addition of a right turn lane from northbound Stewart Parkway to eastbound Garden Valley.

Stewart Parkway Bridge Deck Repairs: 
This project will address the deteriorating condition of the concrete bridge deck on the Stewart Parkway Bridge over the South Umpqua River.  ODOT is doing similar bridge work in summer of 2017, and staff is working with them to have this work included in their project.




Traffic Signal Upgrades:
The City has hired an engineering consultant to evaluate the traffic signals on Garden Valley, Stewart Parkway, Edenbower, and Stephens.  The intent is to complete the intertie of the signals in each of these corridors and make any necessary upgrades to ensure the signals are working as efficiently as possible. 


Telemetry Upgrades:
The telemetry system is the means by which the operators at the Water Treatment Plant can monitor and control pump stations and reservoir levels throughout the water system.  The City's system is past its useful life and the City hired a consultant to evaluate the system and make recommendations for future upgrades.  The study is complete and upgrades to this system will occur over the next four years, with the first phase currently in design.

Main Reservoir Piping Improvements:
This project will upgrade existing deteriorated piping as well as provide redundancy in this critical part of the water system. 

Sunshine Road Main Replacement:
This project will upgrade and replace approximately 1,200 lineal feet of 6-inch water main with new 8-inch water main on Sunshine Road between Sunshine Park and Wild Iris Lane.  This section of water main has experienced several water main leaks in recent years and needs to be replaced.  In addition, fire hydrants will be installed.

Hooker Road Intertie:
The purpose of this project is to remove and replace an existing transmission main inter-tie that connects the City's 20-inch transmission main and the City's 30-inch transmission main.  The inter-tie, which is located near the intersection of Hooker Road and NE Stephens Street was built in 1965 and is beginning to show signs of leakage and needs to either be removed or replaced.
